Lodge brothers, the family run Funeral business based in Feltham, Middlesex has yet again placed its trust in Coleman Milne when it came to replacing their funeral vehicle fleet. The order for 22 Mercedes E-Class based funeral vehicles, represents an investment of over £2million pounds. The purchase, led by Operations Director Janet Lodge, and ably assisted by her brother Mike Lodge, Finance Director was concluded late December 2011 for delivery during the summer months of 2012.
Commenting on the decision, Janet said “with such a huge investment, it was right that we considered all alternative vehicle types and suppliers. It is not only the vehicle, but the operational support that matters when you run an operation such as Lodge Brothers. Having carried out an in-depth review of all the options open to us, we are delighted that Coleman Milne and Mercedes came out on top as the best solution for our business”.
Geoff Hudson, Sales & Marketing Director for Coleman Milne added “We are thrilled that after lengthy negotiations, Lodge Brothers have yet again placed their faith in Coleman Milne to deliver their requirements for funeral vehicles. Everyone at Coleman Milne will work hard beyond the point of delivery to ensure the after sales service and support is available if required”.
Lodge Brothers was established in the late 1700’s by James Lodge and is still run today by the 7th generation of family members to the same principles and objectives established by their ancestors.
